    Great bikes. Makes me want to put up a "Show us your Easter bonnet (helmet)" thread, but I'm too lazy to take a pic.

    No, it doesn't make him a terrible person, and my choice of words could have been better. As for premature celebration, I was celebrating because I truly believed a deal was in place. Naive? Perhaps....

    You're filling holes out of your own imagination, Narhay. We talked initially when he phoned me because I gave him my cell # in the first email. I phoned around to folks to purchase and pick up,...

    Spence, you've mentioned this a few times, but it's a red herring. If, as you say, a better return was reason enough for him to turn left and pull his bike from CL (and I'm not saying it wasn't),...

    Good pic. Blaming rampage? Rampage? Didn't realize I had triple spaced my post, as there's a whole lot between the lines you seem to be reading.

    Well,two things. First, I wasn't "so upset." I wasn't devastated, distraught or even angry. I was, as I wrote, frustrated. That's a pretty low key emotion, more akin to nonplussed or irritated...

    Yes, it will come. And there's always some oddball to save the day. Got a chuckle from this CL posting: "MIYATA two ten,Chromoly BDenium triple butter."

    Frustrating evening yesterday. The seller and I had agreed on things. I called back a few hours later to make final arrangements. He informed me that someone else had offered him $400. I called back...

    Score! 1989 Miyata 1000LT

    I have an IFTTT bot that alerts me on Craigslist Miyata postings. A couple hours ago I saw a fresh posting for a 1000LT for $300. Evidently I was the first email to get through. The seller called...

    When I was younger I would save my energy, chase the offending motorist down and give him/her a piece of my mind. And now that I'm in my...

    Forgot to mark the frame as sold. It was purchased by daf1009 down in Georgia. We did a bit of an exchange. He picked up for me a 1988 Schwinn Cimarron in Atlanta that I had been looking at. I...

    Very good eye. They are randonneuring bars from an '84 Miyata 210 that I bought for parts for $15. The Nitto Dirt drop stem was on the a too big Team Miyata that had all the DA 7400 bits (frame was...

    Just finishing up my final two winter builds. Starting in November I built up a '84 Miyata 210, a '85 Miyata 610, a '86 Schwinn High Sierra. In the last three weeks I finished things up with a 1990...

    Haven't thoroughly read the thread, so don't know whether Old Man Mountain skewer mounted racks were mentioned. Exceedingly well designed. Most solid racks out there.

    Can't wait to see your build! For those who don't know, I bought this bike from a fellow in Texas. It was built up with DA 7400. I bought it as a 56cm, but it turned out to be a 58. So I bought a...

    Suntour is better, but also consider that the GT is the touring rd, meaning it's at least a medium cage, possibly long. Allowing for additional chain wrap is not an issue per se, but it won't be as...

    I suppose Schwinn saw "Paramount" as a bike name instead of strictly a road bike name. The PDG Series mountain bikes did Schwinn proud. They were very fine steel hardtails, especially the 70 and 90.

    Yeah, barcon prices are sometimes VERY overpriced. I got a pair on Craigslist for $20,but probably won't get that lucky again. And the bike does look like an '85.

    May be a crazy question, but you write Paramount and appear to be talking mtb. Is it a PDG Series mtb? My '91 series 70 has a pulley on the seat tube below the fd. If yours has such and the cable is...
